  • This talk was part of a 2013 daylong event for TEDx that ended up being produced by Suzanne Taylor’s Mighty Companions after TED withdrew from a program they considered to be delivering “pseudoscience,” with their main objection being to this talk. Here are more videos from this controversial event:

    Russell Targ is a physicist who spent several decades running a lab, funded by the CIA, exploring "remote viewing," a practice that seeks impressions about distant targets using extrasensory perception (ESP).

    Listen to Russell in Suzanne Taylor’s new podcast, Searching for Unity in Everything:

    It's discouraging to hear all these people in the audience in 2016 giggling about the exploits of the CIA, probably one of the most evil organizations in human history.

    I would love more people at least start to not ignoring psychic abilities. Over 37 different types of psychic abilities, I'm proud to have 6 of them. Don't believe, then have a reading without cars. Remote viewing is definitely true. It's just reading and feeling energy.
